    AQA physics is nice for most of it. There are multiple choice questions on unit 4 but the work you need to do to get to the answer takes longer than one minute (which is what you get if you do minute a mark.) The magnetic fields in that bit is a bit hard but just takes practice. We are doing special relativity as the option topic, would have preferred the Astro one myself but school chose.
    ohhh at least you have the option XD We do cosmology for OCR A..
    it seems like those 1 marker multiple choice is how they take up your time lol for us we get force time graphs for the first unit and we would have to count squares to get the impulse :lol: which takes a lot of time tbh..

    How's revision going though and have you tried questions from OCR before?

    Chemistry unit 5 (CHEM5) aqa. The actual topics aren't hard to understand, the calculations is a breeze, but jheeze! So many things to memorize. You study more colours in this exam than in an art exam.

    So true, i think it helps tho If you basically know that for example, all Fe2+ complexes are green, all Fe3+ are brown, all Cu2+ are blue (except for carbonate) etc and then just learn the shades/ppt or not, and the odd ones out for example Cuco3 or Ch(NH3)6, idk thats just the way i do it

    M3 - taught most of it to myself, and the very concept of impulse can go do one. T.T

    Chemistry Unit 5 - Edexcel
    Grade boundaries are too high!
    even though I got As in my unit 4 and unit 5 chemistry mock, that was only because of me doing past papers!

    I'm not sure whether I want to go to uni. I don't know what I want to do as a career, so I don't really want to get a degree in something yet. If I was to get a degree I would pick something like maths or product design, because I wouldn't know what to do with a drama degree even though drama is my favourite subject.

    Ah, four that must be a lot of work. What subject are you dropping? Have you got any linear subjects?

    - C2
    - F332 (chem unit 2)
    - S1
    - Physics unit 5
    - Physics unit 4
    - F334 (chem unit 4)
    - F335 (chem unit 5)
    - C3 (forgot most about it)
    - C4 (killing me right now)

    S2
    Genuinely easier than S1

    I need AAA for my university offer, but as I had quite high UMS last year, I'll need BBB, excluding general studies.
    Thats nice to hear that S2 is easier than S1 considering I'm about to self teach S2 in 5 days theory + 3 days past papers = 8 days tops starting from tomorrow onwards.

    Hardest to easiest

    M4
    Of all the modules I've taken. Every single unit with exception to resisted motion (and maybe stability) are amongst the hardest I've had to grasp especially relative motion which in terms of understanding and drawing the diagrams is downright barbaric.

    Physics Unit 4
    The killer for me here is electromagnetic induction and fields (Gravitational and electric) the rest of the unit can be covered moderately with focused revision

    Physics Unit 5a
    For thermal and nuclear sections all i need is revision and a brush up on what is what but however the astrophysics albeit interesting is very demanding in my opinion.

    M3
    Sections which involve diagrams i tend to struggle with this unit is no exception with S.H.M, circular motion and strings especially a S.H.M question involving a string and having to find the period. Other qualms involves Hemispheres/cones/any compound shape on an inclined plane.

    M5
    Module is quite a way down the list due to the first two three sections as they are quite calculus heavy(i.e Moment of inertia) haven't even started on one section yet so it is subject to change as I work through this module.

    FP2
    Most of the module im fine with however transformations on an argand diagram and polar graphs i still need to revise and fully get my head around it

    FP3
    As this module is introducing something completely new (Hyperbolic functions) And a lot of calculus This shouldnt be to bad considering in the exam for conics they only stick to two types of locus questions. To finish this module i only need to finish of vectors and matrices

    Physics unit 2 (Retake)
    Waves and diffraction gratings seriously needs some focused revision other than that the rest can be done with a lot of revision

    FP1
    As long as i brush up on matrices the proper layout of proof by induction and linear interpolation i should get high marks

    Physics unit 1 (Retake)
    Since last year ive managed to get increasingly better at photoelectric effect and oscilloscope questions

    M2
    The difficulty curve is only a tad higher than M1's need a bit of work on statics though

    M1
    Understand all of the content except maybe a few bits on vectors. Main thing that might drag me down are sign errors

    C4
    Only problem i find in this module was vectors and maybe certain cases of percentage errors but other than that i find this module easy

    C3
    Revised this module in a voracious manner only two things that may trip me up are algebraic division and deriving the half angle formulas likely to achieve an A* given that the exams do not get any harder

    C1 (Retake)
    Requires minimal revision compared to the others only things that may require a twice over are Series and asymptote graphs.

    All in all for my firm uni i need AAA but with extreme effort i may end up with an A*AA

    It's easier in the sense that if you learn what you're doing, the questions are all just repeats of themselves! Don't take my word for it though!! If you need any help, just shout

    FP2 will slaughter me, C4 is looking worrying, and I'm not too confident for S2 and C3 either. Rest of maths should be OK, and Chemistry and Physics are all looking promising.
